Interior & Exterior Styling Comparison

The BMW X5's stunning appearance commands the road with its large BMW kidney grilles and distinctive LED headlights. From every angle, the X5 delivers exquisite looks that are sporty and appealing, and you can equip this BMW with various aluminum wheel options. As for its cabin, the X5 has an elegant design that incorporates lots of high-quality materials and luxurious amenities. As optional, you can further refine the interior with glass elements on the gear selector lever to heighten the feel of luxury inside the X5.

Mercedes-Benz has continued to give the GLE the same overall appearance for its exterior styling, but you can find new modern enhancements throughout the grille and lighting designs. However, the aluminum wheel options are what you would expect from a GLE, but you can opt for the AMG package for better-looking exterior accents and wheels. The cabin has the touchscreen as the centre of focus, while the centre console hosts two handles that are right under the four centre air vents.

Technology Features Comparison

The BMW X5 packs lots of technology features to deliver a well-connected and enjoyable commute for all of its occupants. The driver will especially benefit from having all of the X5's relevant information available through the 12.3-inch full digital cluster display, providing access to information such as directions, fuel economy figures, driving range, engine temperature, etc. For entertainment, the X5 features a 12.3-inch touchscreen that's perfectly fitted within the centre of the dashboard, and you can pair your smartphone to this display through Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

On the other hand, the 2022 GLE comes with very similar offerings to the X5 when it comes to the size of its displays, but it features a user interface that is slightly less friendly than the X5's. As noted already, the GLE comes with a 12.3-inch touchscreen for infotainment, and it has a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster to keep you informed of various vehicle information that's helpful during commutes. Other technology features to expect from this model are Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, MG Navigation, five USB-C ports, and a hands-free Bluetooth interface.

Safety Features Comparison

You can always feel safe inside the cabin of the BMW X5 as it features many safety and driver-assistance offerings to provide confidence and security while on the road. Notable safety highlights of this BMW model consist of Collision Warning with City Braking, Blind-Spot Warning, Lane Departure Warning, Cross-Traffic Alert (Rear), Speed Limit Information, and Rear Collision Prevention. However, opting for the Advanced Driving Assistant Package adds more advanced features for safety, including Steering and Lane Control, Evasion Assist, Cross-Traffic Alert (Front), Lane Keep Assistant, Traffic Jam Assistant, and Active Cruise Control.

For safety offerings, the 2022 GLE gets a good amount of safety and driver-assistance features to deliver peace of mind during drives.

    Interior & Exterior Style

    Both these new luxury SUVs can turn some heads, with the 2022 X5 boasting an exterior design that's both sporty and sophisticated in equal measure. This BMW's bodywork and wheel designs are both exceptionally sleek, while its hood is sculpted and perfectly paired with a bold grille for a striking front end. The 2022 Mercedes GLE, on the other hand, is a little more understated, as its rear end doesn't make much of an impression and its bodywork is clean. Other than its attractive front end, this Mercedes SUV falls a little on the subtle side, perhaps a little too subtle.

    These two SUVs' interiors both offer plenty of space for both front and rear passengers, with both offering an optional third row for those in the habit of taking trips with family and friends. While the X5 and GLE each boast class-competitive cargo capacity, our BMW SUV offers a luxury cabin unmatched by its rivals. Between its opulent materials, various charging ports, and numerous amenities, the 2022 X5 is as versatile as they come. A memory function for the power driver's seat comes standard, as do heated front seats, a panoramic sunroof, and LED lighting that you can customize to your liking, while massaging seats and a refined leather dash are available for added luxury. As for the 2022 GLE, this Mercedes' interior is upscale in its own right, but its available leather, wood, and leather trims will quickly jack up its price tag.

    Safety Features

    The 2022 BMW X5 and Mercedes-Benz GLE enter the new model year with solid safety and crash-test ratings, with both offering various driver-assist technologies for confident commuting. The 2022 GLE offers various basics in its standard advanced safety suite, but the BMW X5 gets the nod yet again, with its standard features including blind-spot monitoring, a rear cross-traffic alert that keeps an eye on approaching vehicles while you reverse, and a forward-collision warning system that detects nearby pedestrians. In short, the mid-size 2022 X5 has everything you'll need to take the wheel with a clear head, and you won't have to pay a premium for it.
